VS: LGW V MAN

Tue Jan 13, 2009 6:05 pm

Just wondering what the difference in service was between flying MAN-MCO or LGW-MCO with Virgin? considering changing my flight as MAN is much easier to get too?
Where are you going?

Nothing I believe, MAN-MCO is operated using LGW based 744s

Whilst the overall level of service is not up to the same standards as the LHR flights on VS, I do have to say that my VS flights from MCO have always had a top-notch crew ready to assist in whatever way they can. The girls were, well, gorgeous and very sincere.

The IFE choices are not Top Shelf by today's standards but they should be more than suitable for passing a few hours over the Atlantic Ocean.
None shall pass!!!!

No difference, as DrunKirk said, they are operated by the same a/c that rotate through MAN/LGW. If anything, the MAN flight is more likely to go on time than the LGW flights.

In fact, they rotate AT MCO. The three daily flights: MAN-MCO-LGW, LGW-MCO-MAN, LGW-MCO-LGW. And on Saturdays an extra MAN-MCO-MAN is added.
